Large soundless glowing orange thing that looked like two halves hooked together with a metallic cylinder.One night my boyfriend and I were watching television. My boyfriend looked out the window (facing northwest I think) and yelled to me that he was seeing something strange. I looked out the window and saw a bright orange light which looked quite large. It looked like nothing I had ever seen before.We went outside with a pair of binoculars and looked at this orange thing for about fifteen minutes or so. With the naked eye, it just looked like a large, bright, strange, and orange light. It was circular in shape.With the binoculars we could see it much better. It looked like a yo-yo on its side. Like two bright orange halves connected in the middle by something--like a metallic cylinder that wasn’t visible without the aid of binoculars.Another thing is that it made absolutely no sound at all. It was a quiet night and if it made noise we would have heard it. It also seemed to move slowly, almost like it was just hovering for a little while. When it left, it was slow as well. We watched it get smaller and smaller as it went in a north or northwest direction.I know it has been quite a while since this happened, but I swear I will never forget it. I kind of guessed about the date, but it seems to be about right. I know the year is correct (well, pretty sure-- could be off by one year). I saw a report from someone else who saw something that was described like what I saw in my town. I know they saw what I saw. Same time of day and everything. I regret not reporting this sooner. I think more people saw it and just have not reported it. Like I said, this is something that deeply affected me and I will never forget what I saw.Also, my boyfriend and I were sober (not on drugs or alcohol) at the time and we were both about 21 or 22 years of age. It was also a clear night with little or no clouds in the sky.((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))
